I found this hard shell bowling ball bag at a garage sale ($2).
I found the hard shell bowling ball bag at a garage sale. I found the lamp at Goodwill. 
I used a piece of PVC pipe (large diameter) to put inside the bag to hold up the lamp. Lots of gorilla glue held it in place. I just had to add a lampshade and it was a super simple transformation!
This goes great with this vintage red chair I have. The little red logo on the case is the same red as the chair and the stripe on the bowling pins. It looks a little pink in the photos, but it is fire engine red.

The construction on the basement is finished. I am still finishing up some projects to decorate the space. Will post photos when it is complete!  I found this hard shell bowling ball bag at a garage sale ($2). I found the lamp at the Goodwill store.
